problem with outside of cakes going crusty

(6 Posts)

What could be doing this?

I thought maybe the oven was too hot but did a cake today at 150 and it still happened. Could it be because I line the tin with butter and flour?

almost certainly yhe flour, just butter is fine.

Ok. I saw that on a cookery programme. Thats an easy fix then thanks smile

Are you sure it wasn't bread confused

No. It was definately a cake. They buttered the tin then tapped flour all round the inside.

Ooh, interesting. I like a crusty cake (as it happens) but I'd never though of trying to make on so, IYSWIM.
